Happy New Year and all the best in 2017!

As we start back to school in this cold winter term, this message is intended to keep you informed about some of the happenings at Henry G. Izatt Middle School.

We will have our monthly early dismissal for staff meeting on January 18; students will be dismissed at 2:00 pm that afternoon. It is appreciated when arrangements are made for students to walk home or have an early pick up that afternoon. Our next Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meeting will be held on January 24 at 6:30 pm. PAC has initiated a Facebook Page to share information with parents. It is a private site. Please contact Jennifer Wilson jen@midworld.org or Karen Latimer klatimer@shaw.ca to be added to this social media page.

Our January assembly will be held on January 27 at 9:00 am. Parents are welcome to attend.

Our second series of tri-conferences, a time for students and teachers to share academic progress with parents, will be held the evenings of January 31 and February 2 and the morning of February 3rd. There will not be classes at HGI on February 3rd. Information about appointments will be sent out soon. Booking appointments will be done online using your same passcodes. If you require assistance, please call our office.

February brings HGI participation in a number of performances (Grade 8 Concert Band on Feb 22; Wind Ensemble Feb 23; Grade 9 Concert Band Feb 24; Jazz Bands March 1) at the venues of the Optimists Music Festival and our Grade 7’s participation in the Festival du Voyageur on February 24th.

In February, Grade 8 students will be involved in registration and course selection for Grade 9, the first year of high school credits. Administration will visit Grade 8 classes on February 13 to provide students with their registration packages and initial information. There will be an information evening about option courses and the registration process at HGI on February 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the school. Course selection is done online and the online system will be open on February 17th. All grade 9 registration packages for 2017-2018 are due on February 24, 2017.

For our Grade 9 students, semester 2 will begin on February 6, 2017. This means the students will begin their second half credit option course, and for student enrolled in Senior Jazz Band, the course will now be scheduled in the timetable.

Also for our Grade 9 students, the process for registration and course selection for High School (Grade 10) will begin in February. More information will be sent to you.

Depending on a student’s address, they are designated to attend Fort Richmond Collegiate or Vincent Massey Collegiate. We are currently collecting information from all parents about their designated high school or their choice. Schools of Choice applications can be submitted at any time. Acceptance is not guaranteed as the decision depends on enrollment statistics.

Fort Richmond Collegiate will host their information evening on the evening of February 21, 2017.

Vincent Massey Collegiate will host their information evening on the evening of February 23, 2017

Grade 9 students will visit the high school they have chosen and will receive their registration packages. Heather McDevitt hmcdevitt@pembinatrails.ca is our school contact for Grade 10 registrations. Ms. McDevitt will be available to assist students with their registration and course selection.

Grade 5 – 8 registration packages for 2017-2018 will be sent home on February 13th and will be due back to school by February 24th. For the 2017-2018 school year, due to enrolment and staff changes, the Intensive French Program will not be offered. We will consider offering this program again in the future.

There will be no HGI classes on March 3 or March 17th. The early dismissal (2:00 p.m.) in March is on March 8th.

The HGI Parent Advisory Council (PAC) will be hosting a Parent Information Night at the school on March 14 at 7:00 p.m. The topic will be Internet Safety and Media Literacy. More information will be sent out prior to this date.

Our website and teacher sites continually provide information about happenings at HGI. Check out “HGI Live”. http://www.pembinatrails.ca/henrygizatt/

All the best,

Sincerely,  Mike Pizzi & Peggy Hobson

Aligned with the Pembina Trails School Division new brand, HGI revised our strategic plan around our four pillars:

Humanity – Growth – Innovation – Sustainability

Humanity: We promote belonging, community, global citizenship, and a healthy learning environment – the groundwork for personal growth and development.

Growth: We seek new experiences as means to cultivate curiosity and realize the true potential for learning.

Innovation: We take the risks and disruptive leaps necessary to align new and relevant goals for learning with our rapidly changing world.

Sustainability: We intentionally infuse sustainability initiatives to connect environmental stewardship, social action, and community partnerships to improve the way we live.
